Treatment and prevention of superficial dermatophytosis (tinea)

Society of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology of Nepal (SODVELON)

Delivered monthly education sessions to low-paid workers at a spinning mill on how to treat and prevent superficial dermatophytosis (tinea). They also offered free consultations for workers with existing skin conditions. The project, part-funded by the ILDS DermLink grant, is needed because of rapidly increasing incidences of superficial fungal infections, which are becoming resistant to treatment.
